    Anyone good with .htaccess? Looking to force it so that when people type http:// or www.sitename.com they are redirected to https://www.sitename.com

    #   Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
    #   cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
    #<IfModule mod_security.c>
    #   SecFilterEngine Off
    #   SecFilterScanPOST Off
    ErrorDocument 401 default
    ErrorDocument 403 default
    ErrorDocument 404 default
    ErrorDocument 500 default
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
      RewriteEngine On
      #  If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
      #  line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
      #  of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
      # RewriteBase /home/sitename/public_html
      #  This line may be needed to enable WebDAV editing with PHP as a CGI.
      #RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
      RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
      RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
      RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
      RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
      RewriteRule ^(data/|js/|styles/|install/|favicon\.ico|crossdomain\.xml|robots\.txt) - [NC,L]
      RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
      RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
      RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
    There is my current code but it doesn't seem to be workin; at least with my Chrome.

    @MichaelCS, you should update to let folks know (so that they don't spend time figuring it out) that you resolved this by moving the
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
    RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
    to the top of the .htaccess so it was the first thing processed. ;)

    I would have updated mate but we had a structure fire call come in and I had to leave my laptop running while I took the lads and responded to the call.

    I'll update it now ;)

    Sorry... structure fires are no excuse... we all know you guys have to run by the local store to grab the marshmellows, graham crackers and chocolate for use.

    Just kidding... was a cop myself and ran on several structure fires with the guys... not to mention a time or two having to swing by the station to turn off their stove/oven because one of them had forgotten as they rolled out. :whistle:
    Needless to say, the one that forgot usually didn't again.. KP duty was not fun for them.
